What is CTE????

Career and Technical Education, or CTE, provides students of all ages with the skills and knowledge to become successful in their future education and careers. CTE also helps students become lifelong learners, because you are never too old to learn something new!

Choosing a Career Path

What do you want to be or do when you grow up? Sounds like a pretty simple question, but can be quite hard to answer for some. People may try many things in their lifetime before they find the career that makes them happy and successful. Looking into career exploration may be a way for you to find your happiness sooner in life!
